Set over two floors, this quirky, delightful cottage has traditional charm and character throughout. There are three lovely bedrooms, (steps into bedrooms) with comfortable beds for a perfect night’s sleep. Upstairs there is a shower room and toilet. Downstairs in the open plan living/dining room you can relax on the comfy sofas and read one of the many available books, including books of walks, and light the wood burner during the colder months. There are plenty of leaflets and information about places to visit and things to do as well as information on restaurants and takeaways. The pretty kitchen (steps into kitchen) also has a breakfast table to gather around whilst planning the day ahead with a cup of tea. There is a downstairs bathroom with a bath and shower over, and toilet. To the rear of the property, guests will love the small but quirky courtyard with seats and table to relax quietly or at the front of the property is a small seating area where you can relax and watch the sun go down.
There are wonderful walks from the door, you are on the Limestone Way and a few minutes drive from all manner of interesting places. Take a stroll through the village of Bonsall, where you will find a welcoming pub, only a 5 minute walk away, serving home-cooked meals and local ales. There is also the Barley Mow, about 10 minutes’ walk away, famous for hen races, strong man challenges and extra-terrestrial visitors. There are also the delightful tea rooms, a small village shop, and the beautiful Cascade Gardens for a peaceful stroll around. The Parish Church, St James, is opposite the cottage and on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays (12.00 -3.00)you can have homemade soup and cakes, and at a ridiculously low price.
Just a short drive away is Matlock, with antique and charity shops and the Peak Rail vintage steam railway. There is a Wednesday market in the centre of Matlock, a lovely prize-winning park and swings and boating for the children. Head over to Matlock Bath, visit Gullivers Kingdom for a family day out or catch an Alpine-style cable car to The Heights of Abraham, which offers cavern tours, or treat the little ones to feed the fish in the aquarium and play the arcades. There are lots of cafes and mountains of fish and chips!
Continue down to Wirksworth where you can treat the family to a film at the quirky independent cinema, learn more about the village at the Heritage Centre or explore the Puzzle Gardens. Visit the National Stone Centre, pan for gems and have a coffee. Cromford is home to Arkwright’s Mills, founded by Richard Arkwright, the first factory system in the world and a Word Heritage site, with displays, antiques and very good scones! Be sure to make time for a trip to Bakewell, home to a historic 13th-century five-arched bridge that leads you to the bustling town centre filled with restaurants, tearooms and pubs, as well as dessert shops offering the famous Bakewell Pudding. Don’t forget to stop by the grand stately home of Chatsworth House, where you can tour the magnificent interiors and extensive gardens. Not far away are National Trust properties, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston, both are amazing. You could visit the Plague Village, Eyam, and walk the town trail which follows the course of the plague as it ripped through Eyam. The villagers decided to cut themselves off from the outside and the plague never reached the rest of Derbyshire although many people in Eyam died. There is a very good museum. Castleton is the only place where Blue John is mined and you can buy beautiful jewellery in the town.
Carsington Resevoir is a few miles away, with lovely walks, a cafe, and exhibitions. Church Street Cottage really is a special find in this part of the wonderful Peak District Park, and there is so much to do!
